Self-Clinching Standoffs

Self-Clinching Standoffs are are cylindrical spacing fasteners, usually threaded one end, but the other end has a circular clinching groove. Self-clinching standoffs are used with sheet metal applications. The installation process involves squeezing the standoff through the metal, causing the deformed metal to flow into the clinching groove, locking the standoff in place. Self-clinching standoffs are fixed permanently to the sheet metal, providing a permanent distance separator and making total assembly easier.


Common applications of Self-Clinching Standoffs are:

  • • Sheetmetal Fabrication
